In 2020, it is planned to test the certification system and recognition of qualifications in priority sectors.

“We started work on professional standards on behalf of the First President – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev in 2012. To date, 480 professional standards have been developed. They cover over 2.7 thousand professions. We need professional standards and educational programs that meet modern challenges and rapid changes in the labor market. This was emphasized by the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at a meeting on employment and labor on May 17, 2019,” Mamin said.

The prime minister noted that the Head of State was instructed to complete the development of the Atlas of new professions by the end of March 2020, on the basis of which personnel will be trained in accordance with the needs of the labor market.

“The fourth industrial revolution gives impetus to the emergence of new professions and competencies. We must be prepared for this. Therefore, work in this direction requires coordinated actions by all sides of social partnership — the state, business, and trade unions,” Mamin said.

The prime minister instructed Atameken NCE to accelerate the adoption of professional standards and, together with the Ministry of Education and Science, ensure the updating of educational standards.

“In the future, the initiative and the order to develop new professional standards should come precisely from the needs of production. It is the employer who must determine what kind of specialist he needs and with what skills,” said Mamin.

The head of government instructed the ministries of labor and social protection of the population, education and science, together with the Atameken, to continuously monitor the demand for personnel taking into account global changes in the labor market.
